Hot Fudge Peanut Butter Pudding

Chocolate puddings are a great dessert, but can take a reasonable time to prepare, which you rarely want to do after you have finished your main course.

This wonderfully rich decadent dessert is cooked in a slow cooker.  Combining chocolate and peanut butter is a fantastic match and you can’t go wrong.  Topped with a sweet chocolate sauce and allowed to slow cook for 2 ½ hours to produce a sweet rich dessert.  Paired with vanilla ice-cream and you will be fighting for seconds!

This dessert can be prepared ahead of your main meal so it is simmering away in the background.  Once dinner is done, this can be ready to serve straight away or you can rest for a short period to make room for the wonderful dessert that is coming.
